Dahi Pakoriyan (Phulkiyan) Recipe
This is one of my most favorite side dish to make in summer and it is slightly different from the usual dahi Pakoriyan or Phulkiyan that we make.
You can serve this dish at Aftar time in Ramadan and also at tea time.
This light and yummy dish will be loved by your family for sure.

Peel potato and cut in cubes. Boil these cubes with a pinch of turmeric till these are tender. Throw away the water.
Mix yogurt with 1 tsp sugar, salt and 1/4 cup clean water.
To make pakoriyan, mix gram flour with salt, red chilli powder and coriander powder and then add water little at a time to make a smooth thin paste.
Heat oil for frying in a wok, now take a slotted spoon with round holes it looks like this
Place it over the wok and pour gram flour mixture on it with the help of another spoon in a way that droplets of the mixture drops in hot oil.
They will take shape of round small pakoriyan.
Fry those a little, remove from oil and place over a kitchen towel so extra oil is absorbed.
Keep on repeating it till whole mixture is consumed.
Now take a bowl, preferably a glass bowl and add a layer of boiled potatoes.
Over that pour the yogurt and sugar mixture.
On that spread a layer of sliced onion and then tomatoes.
Sprinkle chat masala on it and also red chilli flakes.
Put it in the fridge till it is chilled.
At serving time, add a layer of crunchy pakoriyan. Do not spread pakoriyan before serving time or they will become soggy and not crunchy.
Serve and enjoy. This is one yummy and very easy dish.
